Needs to be moved forward, you want to have equal heel and toe overhang.

This is with the boot right? If i take the boots out, the foot bed looks equal... sorry, I'm dumb..

Yeah sorry I typed that out a little vague. You want equal parts of the heel and toe of the boot hanging off the edge on the bindings, so if you have 1/2 inch of heel hanging off the back you want 1/2 inch hanging off the front.

Hope that is a little more clear but I am sure someone else will chime in with a more detailed answer.

Looks better but maybe still too much to the heel side. Kind of hard to tell from these photos...try to get down flush with the deck and right down the centerline of the board like the photo I attached. It will be easier to see there.

too another shot kind of like your pic to hopefully show a better angle?
